Build a business aroundyour content
With memberships and newsletter subscriptions made simple out of the box, we think that Ghost is the best open-source platform out there today. (yes, even better than Wordpress) To demonstrate how powerful this can be for small publishers, we've built an open-source theme for Ghost called Newsliner.
Newsliner is a fully responsive theme built around newsletter sign ups, with a prominent call-to-action in the main hero image as well as sign up forms after every blog post. You can also make some articles available only to people who are logged in as subscribers. All with features that are available by default with Ghost.
